My first tournament was cutthroat at Charlie Mayo's house pumpkin open 98.I took fourth place and was hooked. I met Matt Griffith and Ron Lloyd at that tournament and they introduced me to six wicket. I won nine wicket nationals in 2009 singles and doubles. 2010 after ten years of playing I finally won my first six wicket tournament in Tulsa. 2010 9 wicket doubles 1st place. 2011 Midwest Regional 1st place and 2011 Nine Wicket National winner. Looking forward to going to my first Six Wicket Nationals 2012. I love the game of croquet and have made many friends over the years from this game.
